The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance hosted the first DBSA “Facing Us” Video contest in 2007 along with the launch of its “Facing Us,” a national campaign to highlight the "face" of depression and bipolar disorder and to supply tools to those "facing" the challenges of living with these illnesses. The Facing Us Clubhouse, on FacingUs.org, houses a variety of personal, interactive wellness tools as well as a multi-media room featuring inspirational, videos, audio clips, artwork and music.

The organization fosters an environment of understanding about the impact and management of these life- threatening illnesses by providing up-to-date, scientifically-based tools and information.
